"If people don't like instrumental music, I'm here to make them like it."

In today's music scene where countless bands are effortlessly duplicated, Angel Vivaldi stands out as a cutting edge and unprecedented up-and-coming artist. His blend of spell-binding guitar anthems, tasteful yet virtuosic playing and engaging song arrangements have captured the ears of many who would have never given instrumental music a listen.

Angel's debut album, "Revelations," gained him enough notoriety to land him a spot as lead guitarist for Black Market Hero, (post-40 Below Summer/FLAW). After 2 years, he parted ways with the band to focus on his second release, "The Speed of Dark," which was released in 2010. Now on his third release titled "Universal Language," (May 2011) the Ibanez endorsee is focused more than ever to catapult guitar instrumental music back into the world of metal and hard rock. He recently recruited ex-Mutiny Within (Roadrunner Records) drummer Bill Fore to complete his lineup of master live musicians including Jason Tarantino and Jake Skylyr.

Generally speaking, progressive rock bands aren't known for their efficiency — but SCALE THE SUMMIT, who are preparing to release their fourth album in six years, have never exactly played by the rules. First, consider their chosen genre of music, which is perpetually unfashionable by mainstream standards. Then consider that, in the true spirit of prog, they decided to take things one step further — which in their case meant forging ahead without a vocalist. One can only imagine the shaking heads of friends, family members and faculty at Hollywood's Musicians Institute (where the band formed while its members were students) and their many attempts to dissuade the group
from attempting to make a living as an instrumental progressive
rock/metal band. Luckily, they didn't listen — and after hearing "The Migration," SCALE THE SUMMIT's new album, you'll wonder why anyone in their right minds ever doubted the band in the first place. Co-produced and recorded by Jamie King (Between The Buried and Me), it's another adventurous, thrilling helping of atmospheric, evocative soundscapes that aptly showcase the band's many talents — the greatest of which
might just be their ability to combine virtuosity with tastefulness.
As always, the group includes several of their trademark,
fleet-fingered "tapping" passages, which are an even greater joy to witness live. Indeed, the live stage is where SCALE THE SUMMIT have earned considerable fans over the past several years, whether touring with progressive royalty such as Dream Theater, Zappa Plays Zappa and Cynic, supporting neo-prog masters Periphery, Protest The Hero and BTBAM, performing at high-profile festivals (Make Music Pasadena, SXSW, Prog Day, the MetalSucks "Suckfest") or headlining. The band will kick off what will surely be an extensive new touring cycle in support of "The Migration" by performing across North America alongside Intronaut this summer. Buckle up, as SCALE THE SUMMIT's odyssey is just beginning.
